Stamps of Approval

Can I use the Stamp filter to create custom shapes that can be accessed via the Custom Shape palette?

Yes. Once you have created a simple, definable silhouette using the Stamp filter, go to Select, Color Range and select the color you used for the silhouette. Once your silhouette is selected, go to the Paths palette menu and select Make Work Path. This draws a path around the edge of your silhouette. Once the path is drawn, go to Edit, Define Custom Shape, give your shape a name, and click OK. Now, when you select the Custom Shape tool, your shape will be available in the Custom Shape palette.
